2:20 PM Improving ‘People’ Effectiveness

Our industry faces some major challenges including how to
reduce unplanned events, the Great Crew Change and lack of
standardized procedures and training. Automating processes
will not solve these problems. Field operators will always be
needed to run parts of the process. The solution for field
operators is ER simulators that increase companies’ “Overall
People Effectiveness”, leading to:
• Fewer unplanned events (annual savings of $10,000 -
$500,000 per procedure simulated)
• Cut SME time on training by 50%
• Cut overtime on training by 50%
• Systematic standardization of procedures and training
• Speed up qualification cycle / dramatically improve
competency & plant knowledge
• Return on Investment 100%-200% (Average).
